In 2014, IFA collaborated with Nigerian Women Trust Fund and Women’s Rights Advancement Protection Alternative to support two women with disabilities to contest the councillor election in Plateau State. It has also collaborated with Search for Common Ground on Electoral Violence Campaign during the 2015 elections in Plateau State to advance messages of non-electoral violence through the Think Me project. The project says each time you think of violence, think of a person with a disability that will find it difficult to flee this violence from the polling unit to our communities.

In 2015, IFA partnered with The Nigerian Stability and Reconciliation Program (NSRP) to conduct a ground breaking research by Women With disabilities with support from research experts to document effects of violent conflicts on WWDs in Plateau State, titled “What Violence Means to Us: Women With Disabilities speak”. Currently, the report is an important advocacy piece in demanding an end to violence against WWDs.

In the area of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), IFA is a leader in advocating for inclusive access to WASH for PWDs in Nigeria through campaigns. One of such campaign is the Strengthening Toilet Access for Rural Special Schools (STARSS), it was launched in 2013 as an offshoot of the 2 year reign of former Ms. Wheelchair Nigerian National Queen Ms. Grace Jerry which seeks to improve the hygiene and education of Children
